If you ask anyone to recommend a heat pump, chances are that they will mention American Standard Heat Pumps whether for light commercial or residential applications. American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning, a member of the Ingersoll Rand corporate family, has been helping families breathe easier and feel more comfortable in their homes since the 1880s.
American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning were one of the pioneers of home comfort when the radiators were ugly, heavy cast iron contraptions, and they are still in the forefront of today’s world of modern, svelte, highly-efficient heating and cooling systems.
The family tree of American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning is peppered with some of the most eminent names of the 19th and 20th centuries in American manufacturing. The past 130 years has been a journey of breakthroughs, mergers, and huge success which makes it “the name to trust.”
American Standard was asked help design the Apollo astronauts’ Mobile Quarantine Facility by NASA in 1969. The “Home Comfort Buying Guide” of the June 1998 edition of Consumer’s Digest magazine ranked American Standard’s Allegiance® 14 and Allegiance® 16 air conditioners among the Best Buys. American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning was one of the top two brands for reliability according to a survey of 35,000 consumers and in excess of 500 furnace installers, held by a national product testing magazine. American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning ranked tops in overall dealer satisfaction in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011.
American Standard’s mantra is “Quality, Efficiency, Reliability.” Add to that a lot of history, systems that are tailored to your family, meet or exceed all government efficiency standards and are easy to maintain, and it is no wonder readers of a national product testing and research magazine rated American Standard Heat Pumps and Air Conditioners “the most reliable brand among leading manufacturers” in May 2012.
